There are more and more Nebraskans and Iowans visiting food pantries to help feed their families as the economy continues to struggle. Brian Barks is the spokesman for the Food Bank for the Heartland and says the demand has put a strain on their inventory.
Nebraskans and Iowans that can help are asked to text the word “feed” to 501501. That will automatically bill their account $10 that will be donated to the Food Bank for the Heartland. Barks says that $10 donation provides upwards of 30 meals.
The Food Bank for the Heartland provides food to 325 food pantries in Nebraska and western Iowa.
